What do these ratings mean?

I am from Germany. I can not speak English well. I translate my letter to the translation engine "Google":


(I have played the "Japanese-Version" of the game "DYNASTY WARRIORS 6", aka "SHIN SANGOKU MUSOU 5". I have played the game total about 10 to 15 hours.)

 
My REVIEW:

--- A Lot of  INNOVATIONS and CHANGES in the game DYNASTY WARRIORS 6 ---


I think the "Dynasty Warriors" series is one of the interesting series. Although "KOEI" in the game for years no major changes and innovations made, it still makes for a lot of fans are still very fun.

It is true that "KOEI" since "Dynasty Warriors 3" no major changes made. One of the reasons is because it is very difficult for the game "Dynasty Warriors" to make many changes. Because in the game the battle on a big card takes place, and where hundreds of thousands of opponents on the field, and because it is difficult, all in real-time display, even with a live report card and protocol. Because everything happens in real time. And also, there is at "Dynasty Warriors" about 40 playable characters, and everyone has a different weapon and various attack-, fight- and Musou-movements (techniques). It is even very difficult to have a game to produce that have all these properties, and even on the PS2.
Therefore, it is very difficult for years been major changes and improvements to make. There was always only small changes and small changes. Some fans wanted so, but some not.

But, this time the game "Dynasty Warriors 6" is different. At "DYNASTY WARRIORS 6" has been very many changes and innovations. Both of her graphics, as well as from her scenario, as well as the characters ... Etc. ..  "KOEI" now all of the changes and improvements made, which have been years could not do.

Now I come to the innovations and changes in the "Dynasty Warriors 6". I have played the "Japanese-Version" of the game "Dynasty Warriors 6", aka "SHIN SANGOKU MUSOU 5". I have played the game total about 10 to 15 hours. I have played alone and Coop (2 Player).

"Dynasty Warriors 6" is a mix of "Action", "Real-Time Strategy", "Beat'em up" and "Hack&Slay".
There are a total of 41 playable characters. Of these, 9 have at the beginning of the game. The other 32 playable characters you must unlock.



"The Positives":

+ The characters all have a *new outfit* (new look) and *new costumes*.
+ The characters all have *new weapons*.
+ The characters all have *new attack* and *new fight techniques*. The characters have acrobatic and elegant attacks.
+ There are 3 elements for weapons: Fire, Ice, Lightning.
+ There are 32 unlock characters.
+ You can either play alone, but also Coop (2-Player).
+ At the game must be broken the normal doors with sword. And the big doors must be broken (prepared) with batterings ram attack and catapults. (in real-time)
+ The characters can now *swim* and even on *horseback swimming*. (in real-time).
+ Now you can *ride boats* and you can *climb ladders*. (in real-time).
+ At the game, there are also a lot of *strategy* elements. (in real-time).
+ Especially these characters have very good new weapons and very very good new fighting techniques = For example, "Liu Bei", "Xiahou Dun", "Zhao Yun", "Lu Bu", "Zhou Yu", "Sima Yi", "Yue Ying", "Zhen Ji", "Lu Xun" and "Zhuge Liang".
+ And you can make infinitely long *COMBOS*. On the screen is a "combo" counter.
+ And there's the new, for the characters different for each specific *"RENBU SYSTEM"*. The system is different for each character. The system comes with the character development and meet with certain orders always evolving, so that new Fighting techniques appear, and allows the character very long attacks and combos. This is a great innovation.
+ The scenario and development system is now different.
+ In the story mode, the characters can go different paths.
+ During the game, there are many Cutscenes.
+ There is also the new *"CHALLENGE MODE"*.
+ There are many different and varied opponents varieties.
+ The *control*, *gameplay* and *camera work* is very good. The *controls* are very fluid. The characters are now much more agile and have multi skills.
+ With the left stick to move the character. With the right stick can rotate the camera, and the camera can even move up and down, so get to the top and look down.
+ And most importantly, the *graphics* are now very good, detailed graphics. You can see the opponents very far. You can see all and the enemys of far away. (720p HDTV, 60 frames per second (fps), Dolby Digital audio).


"Negative":

- The only thing you could describe as negative is that the opponents almost exclusively from *humans*. The opponents are almost all "humans" in different clothes (varieties), and with various weapons. (But there are many different and varied humans varieties.) (Sometimes the tigers and wolves attacks the character.)


"Conclusion":

I think "KOEI" has done it this time, the game in the "NEXT-GEN" to convert. And it has finally managed to very many different changes and innovations. This is a very good interesting game was what the fans liked very determined.

In the *"Coop-Mode"*, there are more effects at the combination "Musou-attack" and there are more fun.

Especially important for me is that the characters can now *swim*, *ride boats* and *climb ladders*. Because these properties needs a mass battle game. That brings variety.

Another important point is that this infinitely long *"combos"* can take. This too is important. Because it's really fun when you see on the screen how many combos you did.

And most recently, the new *"Renbu System"*. The system is very new and very interesting. Thanks to this system, you can also very long combos. At the beginning of the game is the "Renbu system" has not developed. But, the more you battles done, and the more the tasks done and special tasks done, the more developed the "Renbu system." Then you can do in the battles for a long time various attacks and combos.

( I recommend this game at all, there like the "Action"-, "Real-Time-Strategy"-, "Beat'em up"-, "Hack&Slay"-, and "Mass Battle"- games. )



My RATING: 9/10  (90 points)  (B+)
